nations, from a mistaken notion that the

but the exposures of similar clerical im
moralities are so lVcf'.n nt and make so
laige a figure in the current news from year
to year as to make it entirely creditable that
there is a residue of such classes which are
never brought to light. The numerous und
scandalous offences of clergymen against
sexual morality are but symptoms of a dis
ease which has sei.edupon all the churches.
Th! undisguised symptoms are similar to
three which are carefully . hiddeu

Our nrincinal churches are mere
temples of fashion. Scats of these sump
tuous edifices cost thrice and in many cases
tenfold the price of scats at the opera, and
the display of dress would humiliate the
poor even if the sittings were free. The
declaration of the Savior that "the poor

Was 11 1 No ton, I). ('., February 21. There
being a large number of members absent
from the Democratic side of the house, the
appropriation bill was ullowcd to go over
until the absentees could be got together.
It is not probable now that the liepublieans
i will filibuster, ns Garfield and others are in
I favor of letting it go to tlm senate and have
! the tight made where they are in the ma
jority. It will hardly be possible to reach
I any of the railroad subsidy bills during
The senate spent the day in debate over
the army reorganization clause in the army
appropriation bill, but reached no decision
up to the time ol adjournment.
Senator Yoorhccs' bill, authorizing and
requiring the secretary of the treasury to
reissue legal tender notes now held fur the
redemption of fractional currency for the
payment of claims for arrears of pen-duns, is
regarded us a good piec.; of legi-latio t, and
it is thought that the committee on finance
to whom it was refered, will report favora
bly upon it.
DF.MlH'lt ATIC CO.MMITTF.K.
The national Democratic committee meet
here to-morrow, when it is believed there
arisen of exacting an admission fee, us if
Dey'ine service were aniere jiopular entcr
tainment, .standing on the same level as a
theatre or a mii ical entertainment. All
th" dr.-iid realities of religion went to have
evaporated from thes" fashionable enter
tainments, with their display of dress and
pride, which Lave been substituted for de
vout and huniMe worship of the common
rather of all Christians.
Hut while recognizing, as truth compels
us to do. the substantial trutlutf the repre
rentations made by our correspondents, we
must be permitted lo doubt whether mere
exposures of the dilapidated state of our
existing Christianity are calculated to do
much good. Are not such exposures
rather n't fed to discredit- religion and to
confirm that religious professions are a de
ceitful cloak? Vital Christianity will never
be revived by holding up false christians to
It may not become a secular journal to
speak with much confidence on such a sub
ject, but the broad .field of history is
equally open to all inquiries, and sonic of
its lessons are so plain that there can be no
presumption in attempting to state them.
We therefore venture to ntiirm, as a propo
sition which all history corroborates, that
no people was ever recovered from re
ligious langor or scepticism by invectives
against the irreligion of the age. Zeal for
religion dots not essentially differ from
zeal for any other thing which appeals to
the emotional side of human nature. In
periods when thera is tlecny of the stage,
ancl when mere burlesque and show usurp
the place of appeals to great passions,
nothing is gained by declamatory invec
tives against the degredation of the theatre,
But let a great uctor arise a Garriek, a
Saddons, a Hachel and the theatre is at
once lifted out of the degradation of stage
in .which John Wesley was buried. "Who
consecrated this burial place;" !; asked,
referring incHy to the clergyman who had
performed the formality. The agsl sexton,
replied, "It is consecrated by the bones of
that holy ami sainted man of God, John
Wesley, which are here interred." It is no
wonder that Dean Stanley wan struck with
this reverent rep y. Y sley was one of the
the greatest religious men of modern times.
In an age of religious indifference and scep
ticism In; set on foot a movement, which not .
merely created a new sect, but which re
acted on the church of England and roused
it from its religious apathy. Merc invect
ives against the decay of piety would have
accomplished nothing, but the powerful
fervor of Wesley made an era in the history
of religion. It is only by su.'h depth of
religion fervor that an indiff.-rent uml
sceptical age is ever brought back to a real
izing sense of the awful rea' ties of human
destiny. This age waits the appearance of
such a mau. The prevailing skoptism.
rests chiefly on a scientific basis, would
give way before a man of true genius und
apostolic fervor, w ho hud Wesley's power,
or Loyola's power, or St. Bernard's power to
stir religious Meisibiliih s to their
porfouudest depths Until, some micI
apostolic man arises we despair of any ef
fectual check to the prevailing sccptkjsm
and religious laxity of ties age. Thu relig
ious sentiment which is . deonW implanted,
in human nature will re-appeur in victorious
and all-subduing strength as soon as Provi
dence supplies a quickening man or body
ol men who count all tilings as gross in
coinpnri-ion with tin; mighty concerns
which connect man with his final destiny.
This age of scientific scepticism and shai:i
religion awaits an apostle "whose word is
with power" and whose kindling utterantes
will melt all other feelings into perception

Mu. Ennon: There is so much in the
following extract and the continents thereon
that is calculated to awaken Christian men
to the necessities of the times, that I feel
sure that, notwithstanding its great length,
you will kindly lay it before your great
multitude of Sunday readers. "An Old
Fashioned Christian," wriiing to the New
York Herald, says;
It is common nowadays to discover re
volting immorality beneath the sacred
rubes, notwithstanding the fact that many
such offences never meet the light of day,
hut are hidden and concealed, sometimes
fiirthesako of shielding the character of
the chitrYli, and tometimes, it is to be
feared, because the superiors of the ull'end
ing ministers know their own fiailties and
fear to provoke e.posiire by the punish
nu'Dtof miUirdiii.'itcH. This is certainly a
jjnve assertion, Injt it i.; neither inuile
recklessly nor without pain. 1 inn per
sonally cognizant t' mu li uol'oi lunate eases,
uml 1 might cite one in particular which
involves, u clergyman who iv,vnt'.y made
himself very conspicuous by . laiust

not merely an enthusiasm for great
acting, but an intense appreciation
of the great masterpieces of
the drama, which only actors of tho first
order of genius can adequately render.
The stage can be rescued from ignoble de
cay only by the appearance of actors who
are consumatc masters of every phrase of
human passion. If we turn to the kindred
department of music that divine and soul
subduing art we ure led to a similar con
clusion. A truly .gifted singer like Jenny
Lind, for example, redeems music from tri
viality, and takes victoriously captive a
multitude of souls that would have been
indifferent to inferior performances. Xow,
intense religious emotion billows the same
law. No matter how deeply an age may bo
sunk in sculling, scepticism and indifference,
let u man of genius and truly apnstoletic
lorvor appear, and he will kindle religi
ous sensibilities akin to his own.
It would be easy to illustrate this truth
by citing memorable instances in tho his
tory of the Catholic church, but we pre
fer to taka a conspicuous Protestant exam
ple. We select it because it has recently
been brought into conspicuous notice by
one of the felicitous speeches of Dcun
Stanley in hi visit to this country. In the
reception given by the American Meth
odists D 'un Stanley I elated a most affect
incj cneci'.ute of his vitit to the chuixhyurd
rial impurities, and finally skepticism,
did the work of their predecessors. Will
not the wave of religious reform they cre
ate, be speedily followed by an overtopping
wave of tloubt and infidelity: A grave and
most perplexing question is that which is
here presented. The, churches of to-day
are not "founded upon a rock," and unless
Christianity takes a new departure soon
unlets churches are built for the people and
not for the minister; unless the gospel is
made accessible to every human being
unless tho religion of Christ displaces the
ndigion of Fashion unless all this is done,
the time is not distant when "the gates of
hell"- the rapidly growing skepticism of
the day will surely preva'il against the
Christian church, the Protestant arm first,
the Catholic finally. Bei.ikver..
